«Even if Africa is the weakest link in green finance and attracts less than 5% of global green #investmentflows, it is the continent that has the greatest potential to make massive leapfrogs in #sustainabledevelopment. In this regard, we still need to build expert as well as institutional capacity among all the stakeholders, policy makers, regulators and industry players.”
Our COO, Lamia MERZOUKI, took part in the discussion around “Catalyzing ESG, ClimateFinance and innovation : A growth and resilience agenda for Africa & emerging country”, during the conference under the theme of governance and sustainability and its impact on resilience in emerging markets organized by ESCA Ecole de Management, in collaboration with Afrimed Finance Society (AFS2023) and Darla Moore School of Business, University of South Carolina.
Since its creation, CFC, the leading financial center in Africa, has been involved in promoting green and sustainable finance in Africa. The financial center is stepping up initiatives to attract investment flows towards those opportunities.
